Hey fellow wingers I think I have a bad ignition coil but you tell me. The other day I was riding and the bike was acting funny like no power. I thought maybe a bad plug so I pulled no# 3 and no change, I pulled no#4 and no change, so I pulled no# 3 & 4 and no change. I pulled the plugs on those two and the plugs were dry. If the plugs are not firing does the injectors not pump fuel. By the way the left coil has a crack in it

If it is cracked it is bad, it may still fire some but it still needs replacing. The left one fires #3 & #4.

Very true. But be careful. The fuelies use spark units like the 1100's did. So no spark doesn't necessarily mean a coil. Yours is cracked and highly suspect. Swap and or replace to see if the condition follows the component.

One thing that bugs me is the fact that the plugs are dry. That generally indicates lack of fuel, not spark. #2 and #4 injectors are fired from a common lead, so that doesn't follow with your coil problem. If the coil/spark units don't correct your problem, you might want to check the injectors to make sure they are "clicking" and/or passing fuel.
